Super, lots of great information, very well presented by Angie. She's really very pleasant and gives lots of great explanations. You can't tell the 2 hours have gone by. I highly recommend it with Angie 😁😁

Our guide Marlene was terrific and sensitively and respectfully guided us through Jewish history in Amsterdam during World War II. In addition, she guided us through major highlights of the city along our way, and tied it in nicely to the experiences of Anne Frank and her family. She was a pleasure to spend time with despite cold and wet weather along the way. Highly recommend!

We appreciated the guide's knowledge, the places visited and the commentary. However, we were very disappointed not to have visited the house where Anne Frank and her family lived. The story of Anne Frank has enabled you to organize this tour. This is not what we were looking for when we booked this tour. We wanted to visit the house.

The trail in Anne Frank's footsteps is very well detailed and supported by Xavier's rich commentary. He brings to life the settlement of the Jews in Holland and the sad fate they suffered under Nazism. The Frank family is the main thread. Only one regret: the cancellation of the visit to Anne Frank's house shortly beforehand.

The historical background was very well explained, and the guide's command of the French language was even more impressive.

Viewing Amsterdam through the eyes of Anne Frank

This guided tour will take you back in time to Amsterdam during the days of World War II. Your multilingual guide will navigate you past old monuments and buildings that still hold traces of war. Learn about how the citizens of the city struggled during this troubling time as your guide tells you all about the Winter of Hunger and the February Strike. Continue to walk through the Jewish neighborhood at your own pace and notice the Portuguese synagogue and museum, one of the most important legacies of the Jewish community in Amsterdam. See also the Hollandsche Schouwburg theater, which was converted into a deportation center during the Nazi occupation of Amsterdam. You'll also spot the head office of the Jewish counsel along the way.

A story of bravery and resilience

While you stroll through the Jewish neighborhood, listen to your multilingual guide as they share stories about the Dutch resistance and Anne Frank's life. Visit the places that were frequented by young Anne before she was forced into seclusion with her family. Your guide will give you insights into what her life was like during the 2 years she was in hiding in the Secret Annex.
